Gunsmithing / 1884 trapdoor chamber issue
« Last post by nativeshootist on July 24, 2021, 08:35:05 PM »
So a few month ago I bought a 1884 trapdoor, it was a infantry rifle that had the stock cut down but the barrel wasn't. So the issues is that after firing a round, the case is swelled into the chamber and sticks into it where the ejector can't remove it requiring it to be pried out. then once the case is removed it shows imprinting where the case is grabbing on too and it does go around the entire casing, I thought it was a piece of brass that was left in there. I have some cases that came with the rifle that doesn't show the marks the other cases have. i will try and get photos of the chamber later.

I doubt he ever had the guns.  You are lucky you did not send money electronically or we would be getting a different sadder story.  Thanks for sharing.

Having it in my hand don't mean it is going any where.   It is a pretty tight fist  ;D
I have his real name, his phone and his actual address.  He wouldn't have gone far.   Might have been a wild ride but not my first rodeo 8)

Some people have no honor.  I once agreed to buy something on Gunbroker for a certain price.  The seller then puts it at buy it now at that price and someone else jumps in and grabs it before I could.  When I called him on it his excuse was "What can I do?"  Obviously, "Man up and tell the other guy it's already sold." didn't occur to him.

Didn't say I couldn't get them, know a few places including my own personal kitchen, been a while but might just have to do them again.   

So glad my Co-lester-all allows me to cheat a lot.   Dumped the fryer a while back because it hadn't been used since before the big cluster mess.   Could have used it, had had potatoes fried in it last time and strained, wasn't rancid at all, my fear when I found it buried on the table.   Had the last thing been fish and not potatoes it could have been bad. ::)  Always make fries and strain after making CFS Chicken, fish or similar things.   

Normally use that stove top oven I think you donated at a muster.   Got 2 10's and a 13 14, wife makes rumbling about another 13 1/4, had my eyes open, may have to go new sometime, can get one for wholesale plus cost on shipping.

Funny part for me, really?  I have a lot of guns by any measure.  I really don't need any more!  But I thought the original prices were fair enough to make a serious (for me) buy in with that kind of money.

I don't care about the money or the guns.  I have enough of both.

What does bother me is I made "a hand shake deal", in the seller's terms, and it wasn't honored.  Then things got sketchier by the moment.

Caveat Emptor!
